Christian, would it be possible to use HAL or something like that to
pop-up the Yast-partitioner? I don't think we will get a stripped down

No, HAL can't and shouldn't popup anything. It's up to the desktop (e.g.
suse-plugger) to check the HAL events if a device get added to the
machine and react on this.

+ This must be done by the desktop. But it's to late now.
